Details

"She was loading her things into a small Jeep and I said, 'Can I take your photo or would you like me to just go away?' She said 'Could you just go away?' A couple years later and we meet again in Maryland. I'm getting ready to interview her and I remind her of that story, asking 'Can I take your photo this time?' She said 'We'll see how the interview goes.' Obviously it went well. While I was talking to her I had my hand in my shirt and was fingering one of my nipples for some reason. I apologized for my bad manners and she put her hand in my shirt and squeezed my nipple. To this day, that's possibly my favorite-ever interaction with a rockstar."

From 1992-2000 and from 2002-2007 Johnny Riggs worked as a DJ at Baltimore/Washington's leading alternative rock radio station, WHFS (and on XM Radio from 2000-2002). He was also in the band Cinnamon Toast.

Being in a band and also a popular DJ at a beloved area radio station gave him access to a wide range of "alternative" (#whateverthatmeans) artists. Equipped with a Polaroid Captiva, he used that access to take these. He has been shooting Polaroids since he was 7 years old.
